Perspective was developed in the 15th century by the architects, Leon Baptista Alberti (1404-72) and Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446). For 500 years, perspective drawing remained one of the basic principles of Western art until it was challenged by the ideas of the Cubists at the start of the 20th century.

Jacob Breeden says w
hether you are working with conventional materials like pencils and paints or contemporary digital media, a knowledge and understanding of perspective drawing remains an essential tool to help you enhance your drawing technique.

There are two main elements in perspective drawing:
- Linear Perspective which deals with the organization of shapes in space.
- Aerial Perspective which deals with the atmospheric effects on tones and colors.
